Greetings. Yes, your spouse could do that, as he could do anything. Best to file where you are now and get what the law allows you, versus waiting on him to do what is right…which apparently will not happen.
What are you paying for? You retain another attorney and have them call for a copy of your file. You also call your old attorney and leave them a message to immediately stop all work on your behalf. That is the best way. Also, let your other attorney know in writing why you are upset with their work. I always appreciate feedback, but I usually want it as soon as possible, so I can fix any problem with a client. Best of luck.
